Default Any one know how much the stock steel rims and tires weigh on a 08 Honda Civic sedan?

I want to buy some after market rims and tires I just need to know the weights so I can make the right choices in size and weights. I looked on the net an cant find anything

Less than the power robbing, handling destroying , 20 inch dubs you wish to install.

You will probably not be able to find aftermarket rims that are the same weight as the steel rims you have right now. I'm going to go out on a limb and say they weigh at least 15lbs. each (that's really light). The fact of the matter is you're going to have to get heavier rims, which affects braking distance a bit. You can find lightweights, which is almost identical or lighter than the stock rims (your case EX alloy rims, not steel rims). Check out http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/resul...utoModClar=LX, they have the weight of the rims they sell. I don't know how big your going but one thing to remeber is bigger rims need bigger tires, which are heavier. Hope this helps!
